I am going to try to not get worked up over this post. I have had so many mixed emotions over this whole thing since I first heard of it.... I am talking about the octuplets. My first question is... what doctor in his right mind, would transfer 6 embryos??? Those of us that have been through the IVF process know that most REs will not transfer more than 2 or 3 at a time because of the health risks that comes with having multiples. I think the Dr. should be in charge of taking care of each and every one of those babies including putting them through college.
Second, how in the HELL (pardon my language) did a woman on FOOD STAMPS and living with her MOTHER afford to do IVF that many times? I mean really??? Come on!! My husband and I both have good jobs and try to live within our means and we will be paying off our IVF for years to come.
Third: Those poor babies!! They didn't ask to be brought into the world this way, and to a mother who is not responsible enough to even know when enough is enough. Her first 6 kids are going to suffer now because there are 8 more mouths to feed. 14 kids are going to have to live off of the government and the kindness of others because their mother is a freakin idiot!!
I won't even get started on the grandmother and the home they have been living in.
I want to scream at someone. It just doesn't seem fair!! All I want is one healthy baby to love and care for... and this deranged woman gets 14 that she can't care for??? I keep trying to remind myself that it is not my place to judge and there must be a reason that this person has been blessed with 14 beautiful children that she can't afford to take care of. You have no idea how many times the thought of these babies has gotten me so worked up to the point of a near anxiety attack. Then today I ran across this... http://www.thenadyasulemanfamily.com/ the woman has the nerve to ask for donations!! It makes you wonder if that was her idea all along... maybe she'd get a TV deal and be the next John and Kate Plus 8.... maybe she'd get rich off of her pretty little babies and never have to work and could pay someone to take care of them for her. I took one look at those sweet babies and my heart just broke! It really just doesn't seem fair...
